On Borders

For most of my digital photography career, I was pretty anti-border. They’re so … artificial. But, long story short, I show a lot of my work on Flickr, and Flickr has a terrible user interface for the display of art. I needed something to separate my photos from the other design elements. And the same was true at my old blog.

But I’m open to experiment now that I have this new playground. So I’ll try the next post without borders and see what you think. For the time being, if you see a post with a single image that has a border, it means that image is also hosted on Flickr, and you can click on it to read more comments there.

brett maxwell - interesting decision. I like a border, but certainly don’t want to distract from the photo, so I’ve settled on a 1 pixel black stroke on everything.
